're seeing at major retailers. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. tell us more. >> it's like having a flashback to black friday. the deals, everybody killing each other just to get the deals but if you're a retailer you take a big hit on a day like today because the national retail federation says almost 11% of whole day gifts we got are returns. that adds up to $60 billion and a lot of that happens today. it's a busy day for retailers. if you're returning stuff today that's some good news here, most stores are keeping their return policies the same as last year so the whole process should be more familiar. even better, 10% of retailers say they're loosening their return policies, compares to 5% who loosen their policies last year so that works in shoppers' favor but remember retailers are still trying to get you in to spend money. they're offering big sales as you said, carol, and they know if you come in with a return you're likely to look around and do a little extra shopping on your own so you get rid of the sweater, buy the dress, they got you in the store, carol, so the

. >>> good morning, i'm carol costello. jobless claims fall to a four-year low. alison kosik joins us from the new york stock exchange to tell us more. >> this winds up being a big improvement for jobless claims number falling 12,000 last week to 350,000, and what that means is that the level now is close to the lowest level since the early part of the recession, so it really shows these layoffs are slowing. something interesting has been happening in the past several weeks. the claims numbers have spiked, and then have slowly been settling down and that was mostly because of superstorm sandy. so today with the level at this more palatable sort of level at 350,000 the big question is will today be just a blip or will this be the beginning of a trend, and that's what you really want to see. you want to see the level of layoffs continuing to at least stay the same and obviously you want to see them come down but at the same time you also want to see hiring happening and that's where that government jobs report that we focus on once a month, that's where that comes into play. we're going to g

with the list of best value cars. alison kosik at the new york stock exchange and ready to ride. good morning. >> good morning. >> which car came out on top this year? >> the top spot this year goes to, drum roll, please, drrrr -- there you go, the toyota prius. this is what "consumer reports" found. it divided the lils st of the b value cars by type of vehicle. the prius came out not just on top in the small hatchback category but also as the best value among all 2013 model year cars. to figure out these rankings, the magazine takes into account how much it costs to own one, how the car performs, how reliable it is and "consumer reports" estimates a prius costs 49 cents a mile to own and if you've got kids the camry hybrid, that topped the family sedan category. "consumer reports" says it's not just comfortable and roomy, it also gets 38 miles per gallon and looking for something sexier the lexus rx350 is the best value large or luxury suv and despite the fact it's a little lackluster in how it drives, it did, however, victor, do pretty well in the magazines performance tests. >> some good n

homeowners from paying thousands of dollars to the irs. that's set to expire. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange to explain this. so what is this all about? >> first of all, this would affect anyone who foreclosures on their home or who sells their home as what's known as a short sale. that's when you sell your home at a loss but avoid foreclosure. this could involve up to a million people. this is about a law put in place in 2007 called the mortgage forgiveness debt relief act. let's say you sell your house for $100,000 but your mortgage is $150,000. you normally have to pay taxes on the remaining $50,000. this law excuses homeowners from paying that tax. this law is expiring in a few days as part of the fiscal cliff. if congress does nothing, homeowners selling at a loss will have a big tax bill to deal with. it could be in the tens of thousands of dollars. it it comes at a time when they can least afford it. >> how are the markets doing today with all the news about the fiscal cliff and going over it being a possibility? >> markets are selling off just a bit. the dow is down 75
